Discussion of “This Is How They Tell Me the World Ends”

June 30 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm CDT


Cyberweapons add a new dimension to human conflict, and thus have implications for the development–and application–of new types of weapons and the modern conduct of warfare. The 2021 book “This Is How They Tell Me the World Ends: The Cyberweapons Arms Race,” by Nicole Perlroth, is a NY Times Bestseller that is non-fiction journalism but reads like a modern-day spy thriller–with insights and perspectives that are illuminating, possibly terrifying, and worthy of discussion (particularly in light of the Ukraine invasion). Join us for an online discussion of this prize-winning book and its implications, led by SXSW Chief Programming Officer, Austin Forum advisory board member, and avid book-reader Hugh Forrest. Also, since SXSW will have just opened the PanelPicker for 2023 submissions, Hugh will share some insights on how to craft the best submissions for SXSW 2023!
